Mark Ostaszewski threw for one touchdown and ran for another Saturday to send Archbishop Ryan to a 22-7 victory over Archbishop Wood in a Catholic League cross-division game at George Washington. The senior connected with Connor Golden for a 65-yard touchdown in the third quarter and ran a sneak for a 1-yard score in the fourth for Ryan (5-3). Luke Spahits scored the only touchdown, on a 48-yard run, for Wood (6-2), which entered the game ranked fifth in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer.

Before each game, Samir Bullock briefly steps away from his Archbishop Ryan teammates, looks upward, and says a prayer for his late father, Lee. "He was a big influence in my life," the star tailback said. "When he passed, it was really tough. But it gave me motivation to work harder and make him proud. " Bullock did just that on Thanksgiving Day, scoring three touchdowns and eclipsing the 2,000-yard rushing mark for the second straight season in sparking the visiting Raiders to a 28-20 victory over George Washington at Mickey Young Stadium.

Connor Golden didn't think there was anything particularly gutsy about his decision. To an outsider, though, the Archbishop Ryan punter's snap call at the line to fake a punt late in Thursday's 13-7 win at George Washington sure seemed as if it took some fortitude. Especially since he had been intercepted on a fake attempt just a few minutes early. This time, Golden hit Bobby Romano for an 11-yard completion to the Washington 30-yard line, allowing the Raiders (6-5) to continue a drive and bleed a few more precious minutes of clock.

YOU NEVER KNOW what the camera will find. Yesterday, after Archbishop Ryan's Austin Chabot was asked to hold a postgame pose, his smile revealed a black mouthpiece styled with painted-on white fangs. Usually, the 6-6 junior forward plays with unencumbered chompers. However, last week's gruesome injury made that impossible. "When we played Washington on Friday, a kid threw an elbow and my tooth went through my lip, right here," Chabot said, lifting his right upper lip to reveal a gnarled gash.

La Salle's tight end played fullback yesterday. A junior receiver filled in for a full-time defensive back. And a junior linebacker made his first varsity start, as a defensive end. In a 13-0 victory over previously unbeaten and No. 4-ranked Archbishop Ryan, the three substitutes helped put No. 6 La Salle in a very unfamiliar position - atop the Catholic League Northern Division and bound for its first postseason appearance in the 15-year history...

What sports-minded father would not enjoy having a successful basketball player for a son? The father of Archbishop Ryan senior lead guard Ray Ott, at least in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Ott's father, also named Ray, was a football and baseball player during his high school days at Father Judge. The elder Ott wonders why young Ray isn't partial to hitting bodies across a line of scrimmage or hitting shortstops on takeout plays at second base. The way he figures, there is nothing macho about hitting a jump shot.

Kate Ostaszewski yelled, "Dive. " So Vicki Black did. Black, the centerfielder for the Archbishop Ryan softball team, came charging in on a line drive in the bottom of the seventh inning Wednesday at Arcadia University. With runners at the corners, Cardinal O'Hara was looking to tie the score in the Catholic League softball title game. That's when she heard Ostaszewski, who wasn't too far away, from left field. The senior didn't hesitate. "I knew it was a straight line drive," Black said.

Archbishop Ryan was looking for a challenging tune-up before the Catholic League Class AAA playoffs, and speedy and physical West Catholic perfectly fit the bill. The Burrs passed for nearly 300 yards, notched three long touchdowns through the air, and had a 14-point lead early in the second half of a nonleague contest Saturday at George Washington. "That team had a lot of good playmakers," Ryan senior linebacker and running back Jason Wagher said. "Their offense was hard to hold down.

The ball was sitting 20 yards from the goal, and Archbishop Ryan senior Miguel Rendon was laser-focused. For all intents and purposes, it seemed as if the striker with the big foot was going to take the free kick. That's what everyone - including the La Salle defense - was thinking, anyway. Instead, he laid it off to sophomore Michael Kirby, whose shot ricocheted off the far right post and into the back of the net. Kirby's goal with a little less than 31/2 minutes to play was the game-winner in Ryan's 2-1 victory over host La Salle on Wednesday in a Catholic League boys' soccer game.

You can judge Maggie Balint by the speed of her fastball. You can judge the senior by the way her rise fools batters into swinging when it is out of the zone. You can judge her by the number of strikeouts and wins she has accumulated over the years. It's all impressive, stunning actually. But all of that is just part of the picture, a fraction as to why the righthanded Oregon recruit is the Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania softball player of the year for the third consecutive season.

Pitcher Maggie Balint thought that a coin flip would decide who was the home team for Avon Grove's first-round contest Monday in the PIAA Class 4A state softball tournament. But then the co-captain found out the Red Devils would be the away team against Archbishop Ryan - with no coin toss - for the first time in three weeks. It was no big deal for Balint, an Oregon recruit who said she likes hitting in the top of the inning because she enjoys getting a run right away. And Avon Grove got the jump on Ryan from the start in the game at Arcadia University.

The boys' 100-meter finals at the Catholic League track and field championships on Saturday afternoon included several sprinters who also excel on the gridiron. La Salle receivers Charles Headen and Winston Eubanks, West Catholic receiver Jameer Bryson, and St. Joseph's Prep tailback D'Andre Swift were part of the top-notch field. Headen leaned in at the end and claimed gold at Cardinal O'Hara with a clocking of 10.88 seconds. Bryson (11.07), Eubanks (11.11), and Swift (11.17) were next in line.

Ed Ulmer's longtime dedication as a track and field coach was witnessed on many dank and bitter winter days. Late on a Friday afternoon, Ulmer would leave Archbishop Ryan with the girls' team and make the rush-hour trip to Lehigh University for an indoor meet. He didn't return home until 12:30 or 1 a.m. Then, on about four hours of sleep, he would drive back in the dark to Ryan, gather the members of the boys' squad, and return to Lehigh for the same. And he happily did it every other weekend.

At the Ostaszewski house in the Chalfont neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia, there's no doubt about who is in charge. At least not according to the family's two youngest members: Emily and Kate. "Sarah is the boss," Emily said through laughter, when speaking about her older sister. Kate would later agree with the sentiment. The same goes for the Archbishop Ryan softball squad, where Sarah, a two-year captain, is often referred to as the "team mom. " On the field, Sarah - a catcher - calls the pitches for the Ragdolls, led the team in batting last season, and has an impressively accurate arm. "Talk about a five-tool player," Ryan coach John Kidwell said.
